Hello everyone,I am mostly a freshwater fisherman but one day a friend of mine told me to grab one of my heavy duty freshwater baitcasters and my waders and we were going to go for some schoolies.Schoolies?I asked what are you talking about.We went to the tackle shop and got some shad bodies and swimming jigheads and went to Squantum.The tide was coming in and we were casting away not knowing what was gonna happen then all of a sudden WHAM!!! Fish on my first striper ever was 9lbs on freshwater gear,that was it I had to learn how to catch more.I have a basic understanding for these fish but im hoping the guys here can help me learn more and catch some more too.Im looking forward to talking to anyone who is willing to talk to me too.

Welcome aboard.
I would recommend that you start out by going to the Stripers101 forum and start reading. There's at least a week's worth of reading material there, all top notch stuff for the beginner

Thanks guys,That sounds like a good place to start.I had just picked up book by Zeno Hromin the art of surf casting with lures and found it to have alot of helpful info.Im going to the Canal down the Cape Saturday night and will be slinging eels throughout the night and will toss some polaris and pencil poppers around dawn,If that don't work do either of you know any good local beaches I can go hit and do some surfcasting in the waders?Thanks and I appreciate your help.

I have read both of Zeno's books. I use the art of surfcasting with lures as a reference guide all the time

Good luck
